Five years ago, Superstorm Sandy took lives, destroyed homes, and flooded subways. Like in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the people hit hardest by Sandy were the poor, people of color, immigrants, and our most vulnerable communities.

New York’s elected officials must protect us from the impacts of climate change and lead a just transition to a renewable energy economy. We cannot wait any longer. On October 28th, we will assemble and march from the Atrium at SUNY New Paltz, and then rally at the New York State DEC on S.Putt Corners Road.

Speakers include: Assemblymember Kevin Cahill’s Office, Director of Environmental Studies and PhD of Sociology Brian Obach, Superstorm Sandy Victims, SUNY New Paltz Student from Bangladesh, Aumma Begum on how rising sea levels have devastated her hometown, and more!!!

On October 28th, let’s march to demand a better future.

Sponsored by: Citizens for Local Power, New Paltz Climate Action Coalition, NYPIRG, NYSR, Riverkeeper, Students for Sustainable Agriculture, SUNY New Paltz Climate Action Club, SUNY New Paltz Environmental Task Force
